A firearms company that holds the Tommy Gun™ trademark has brought an infringement action against a company selling its vodka products in 19-inch bottles shaped like Tommy guns. Saeilo Enters., Inc. v. Alphonse Capone Enters., Inc., No. 13-2306 (U.S. Dist. Ct., N.D. Ill., E. Div., filed March 27, 2013). The plaintiff seeks damages, treble damages, profits, attorney’s fees, and costs under state and federal law, as well as a permanent injunction, cancellation of the vodka maker’s trademark registrations and the destruction of remaining stock. According to a news source, the plaintiff has been aggressive in protecting its brand and, in 2008, sued a company making Tommy gun replicas. It has also apparently trademarked the term “Chicago Typewriter,” a slang expression for the submachine gun. See ABA Journal, April 5, 2013.
